She is the bestselling author of “Unconventional Nurse: Going from Burnout to Bliss!” and Michelle’s workshops and coaching are designed to teach nurses pivotal business skills that will accelerate, increase and maximize small business owner success!

A Navy Veteran and RN over 25 years, Michelle dealt with her own feelings of burnout by leveraging her hospital based clinical nursing experience into non-traditional settings and ended up running multi-million dollar software and service companies.

Long being recognized as a visionary leader and a people developer, Michelle now helps nurses develop the mindset, strategy and skill sets to create a life of their dreams.

I met Michelle over fifteen years ago, while being interviewed for a project management position for her company. I greatly respect her passion to help people grow and challenge themselves, as I am one of those individuals who benefited from her influence. During those years I have watched Michelle work with Fortune 500 clients, oversee operations and grow companies to success. She knows how to get the best out of people, while staying real to herself and to her passions–nursing, cooking and business! An Unconventional Nurse, you bet! – Diane A.
